Manly P. Hall was a well celebrated critical thinker, social analyst and O.G. conspiracy theorist. In this lecture, he discusses how our obsession with the past can create a destructive pattern when we live exclusively within it. I’ve struggled with this sort of self sabotage my whole life and it’s something I have to constantly pull the reins in on.
I’ve seen it ruin friends and family members to the point where the past is the only identity they have. It’s one of the saddest things to see someone who you love disappear into that abyss. If you find yourself dwelling on issues from your past to the point that it affects your present day, then break the cycle now before it dictates your future. Live NOW. There is no tomorrow.- Cornbluth
